Scott Brown has been snapped up by Harrogate Town after turning down a new deal at Accrington Stanley.

Midfielder Brown was one of four players offered fresh terms by the Reds at the end of their current deals.

However, the 34-year-old followed in the footsteps of Reds defender Ben Richards-Everton of opting to seek pastures new for next season.

Brown revealed on social media that he was ending his three-and-a-half year association with Stanley on Monday after rejecting the contract offer.

But Brown was quickly snapped up by National League side Harrogate Town.

He was a regular for Stanley last season, featuring 37 times in 2018/19 and clocked up 128 appearances in all for Stanley.

Brown has five promotions on his CV and will be looking to add that with a Harrogate side who were beaten by AFC Fylde in the National League play-offs this season after a sixth-placed finish.

On leaving Stanley, Brown wrote on social media: “Would like to thank all at Accrington Stanley, fans staff and players for all that have done and given me in my time at the club!

“Got some of the best memories that will last forever.

“I wish all the best for the future.”

The transfer is subject to FA and National League approval, with Brown set to join up with his new club once his current deal at Stanley expires at the end of next month.

A Harrogate Town spokesman: “We would like to welcome Scott to the club and look forward to seeing him in action in pre-season at The CNG Stadium.”
